TownCenter8Welcome to Carol Stream. This section is design to provide you, the new resident, with the information you need to live in Carol Stream.

The Village of Carol Stream was incorporated in 1959 at a time when only a few rural farmsteads surrounded by vast cornfields and pastures existed in this part of DuPage County. Today, the Village is part of the Chicago metropolitan region and a leader among western suburban DuPage County communities. The last official Village population census conducted in 2000 totaled 40,438 residents.

The local housing stock includes a variety of dwelling types such as single-family homes in all price ranges, condominiums, town homes, apartments, senior independent retirement community living, and a senior group apartment housing complex. In general, the value of the local housing stock has consistently increased over the years.

Carol Stream is home to more than 900 businesses and industries including several Fortune 500 companies. Peacock Engineering, DeMar Logistics Inc., A.J. Antunes & Co., Royal Die & Stamping Inc. , Inland Corrugated Packaging, Berlin Industries, Vickers Inc., Office Depot, Prince Castle, American Flange Co., Trans Tech America, Fed-Ex Ground Transport, Mercedes Benz of North America, Thyssen Krupp Specialty Steels, Tyndale House Publishing, FIC America, Ingram Micro, Inland Detroit-Diesel, and Moore Business Forms are among the many.

Village residents who regularly travel the thirty-five miles to the Chicago Loop for business or cultural activities are only a forty-minute commute via the Wheaton, Bartlett or Hanover Park Metra commuter train stations.

A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE AND WORK

Carol Stream also offers modern schools, a large park district with state of the art facilities, a modern library and churches of several denominations. The Village of Carol Stream is governed by a seven member legislative body made up of a Mayor and Board of Trustees. The Mayor and Trustees are electedCSLogo to four-year staggered terms. The Mayor and Board of Trustees form the governing body of the Village, enacting ordinances and setting the policy for Village services and procedures. The Mayor and Village Board of Trustees encourage residents to attend its regular meetings held on the 1st & 3rd Monday of each month at 7:30 pm at the Bielawski Municipal Center located at 500 N. Gary Ave.  Should a 1st or 3rd Monday fall on a national holiday, the meeting will be rescheduled to the next day.  During each meeting, residents and the general public are provided an opportunity to share issues and concerns directly with the Board during the Listening Post segment.  Citizenship requires residents get to know their elected representatives and attending a Village Board meeting is a good way to get to know your new community and become familiar with the many services we provide.
